Guitar Service


So it's been a few weeks since I picked up my strat, and at lunch time today when I took it down from the wall to prepare for tonight's church service I realised that it was dirty. Very dirty indeed. I sweat muchly while playing, especially when it's 37 Centigrade under the tent, and if I don't wipe the guitar down straight after then crud happens.

Anti-crud measures include

remove strings
polish guitar body with Dunlop Formula 65
polish fingerboard with Dr Stringfellow's Lem-oil
restring with Ernie Ball Power Slinky strings gauge 11
lubricate strings with FingerEase guitar string lubricant
tune up
stretch strings
play for a while :-)
